    I am unable to be too technical about this issue however the problem that i was having was:

    PROBLEM:

    - when i booted up XP, i could see my desktop and open other applications, however i could not dial up my adsl for approximately 30 seconds. after this wait time, everything worked perfectly.

    SOLUTION:

    i phoned up my isp last night for technical support and they told me that the problem was something to do with the computer looking and setting ip addresses? and that i needed to set a static ip.
    i did this with their help and problem solved! no more delay after i boot up to access the net!

    HORAH!
    :D
    I hope i have helped someone out by letting u know about this!

    cheers,
    J
